Woo-hoo, I've always wanted to create a vim video tutorial series, and now that I have the software to do it, I'm finally embarking on this adventure.
I've taught the vi editor to dozens — maybe hundreds — of Unix and Linux users, and I know that I need to work my way into it easily. So, that being said, here's a link to my first video on the vi editor, where I demonstrate:
- How to start vi
- How to quit vi
- How to insert text
- How to save the text
- Command mode, last-line mode, and insert mode
I hope this "vi editor" series will be helpful to Linux and Unix users. Remember, vi is your friend, and very importantly, it comes free with every Unix system out there, so if you know vi, you can easily move from one Unix system to another.
To see my vi/vim introductory video tutorial, click the image above, or follow this link to my "Introduction to the vi editor" video on YouTube.
More vi/vim video tutorials
I've created a few more vi/vim video tutorials over the last few days, and here are links to all of them:
- The vi/vim editor - Lesson 1
- The vi/vim Editor - Lesson 2 - vi Navigation Commands
- The vi/vim Editor - Lesson 3 - Inserting Text with vi
- The vi/vim Editor - Lesson 4 - Deleting Text with vi
I'll continue to update this document as I create new videos.
